Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch & Dinner
Chef Gillian Clark started Colorado Kitchen because the neighborhood needed a good restaurant. Now she mans the range pretty much on her own and turns out well over a hundred meals on a busy evening. Very impressive.
The Colorado Kitchen is also a little upscale for HollyEats. Or not. It's mostly solid - very solid - down home cooking with some creativity added when Gillian feels creative.
Dishes like the meat loaf above and the pineapple upside down cake - not to mention the incredible biscuits - basic eating - but prepared extraordinarily well. Gillian's creativity comes in with the Monkfish Schnitzel to the upper right or the lobster corn dog.
I can't imagine a trip to DC without at least one meal at the Colorado Kitchen.
